In a previous article we explained how to Save Procare Data to Your USB Drive. Today we’ll tell you how to choose a drive letter (like W, X, Y, Z, etc.) for your USB drive that will always be the same. This is known as a “persistent” drive letter. The reason this matters is because drive letters can change, making them unavailable as a backup option in Procare. By choosing a letter for your USB drive you’ll know it should remain the same on that computer.
Not long ago a common ProCare Technical Support question appeared in our in box.
“When I make a Procare backup, the backup is going to my Fixed Disk Drive instead of my USB drive. How do I add another choice for my backup?”
This is a good question, but it really has two parts. First, what is the Fixed Drive anyway? And second, how do I back up to another device like a USB flash drive or thumb drive?
